Lens OptionsThere are many new lens options available today. You should work with your surgeon to choose the best lens for you. Lenses today can correct optical defocus and sometimes make you less dependent on glasses.
MonovisionMonovision is an effective way to reduce dependence on glasses for some patients. One eye is focused at distance, and the other at near. Not all patients adapt well to this optical system, but those who do are often less dependent on glasses after surgery. There is no extra cost for this procedure.
Cataract surgery with monofocal lensThis video describes cataract surgery with a traditional monofocal lens. This lens is normally covered by insurance. It does not correct astigmatism. It gives the patient one focal point.
Cataract surgery with toric lensThis video describes cataract surgery with a toric (astigmatism correcting) lens. This lens is not normally covered by insurance. It corrects regular astigmatism. It gives the patient one focal point.
Cataract surgery with multifocal lensMultifocal lenses can give patients a wider range of vision, where objects are clear from distance to near. Some patients are less dependent on glasses of any kind after implantation of this lens.
Cataract surgery with toric multifocal lensThese latest generation lenses can correct astigmatism and give a wide range of vision. They can often significantly reduce dependence on glasses after surgery.
YAG laser capsulotomySometimes the capsule that holds the replacement lens in place can become hazy or wrinkled. YAG laser capsulotomy can often fix this. See this video to better understand this procedure.
